About the Program
The Interdisciplinary Project in the Humanities is a rigorous, interdisciplinary program for students seeking honors. The major combines
- an introductory core — a concentrated study of texts central to the European and American philosophical, religious, and literary traditions and
- an area of concentration — an advanced sequence of courses and research tailored to the special interests of each student in the program.
For students pursuing concentrations in American intellectual history, in the European avant-garde in the twentieth century, or in Renaissance political thought (to take three among many possible examples), the introductory core will provide a crucial foundation for advanced interdisciplinary work; the core will also provide a useful background for students undertaking comparative concentrations — for example, in Buddhist, Christian, and Muslim mystical literature, or in the influence of Russian fiction in East Asia.
